Key Things To Consider Before Choosing A Wellington Cladding Professional

If you are planning to reclad your Wellington home or are choosing cladding for a new build, there are many things to think about.

While the final decision may come down to price, the following three areas are important to think about when you are deciding on how to clad your house. If you want to know more about each option before you decide, ask a cladding professional for advice on what would suit your property’s look and your lifestyle.

Colour and Style

There are many cladding options for a Wellington property, but not all of them will necessarily suit your house. If you have a period property like a 1960s villa, then you might want to opt for a more traditional cladding like timber weatherboards, than a modern look.

If you are looking for something that will suit your particular style, then choose linea or palisade cladding that come in a variety of modern colours.

Wellington property owners should also consider the location of their properties when thinking about cladding. For example, brick cladding is not the best option for earthquake prone land or homes that are on steep or hill plots, making it unsuitable for many homes in the capital.

Weather

The cladding protects your house from the elements and in Wellington your choice needs to be able to withstand high winds, variable weather and possibly sea spray if you live in a seaside suburb. If your house is cold in winter, think about choosing something like a polystyrene based cladding that offers good insulation and may help make your home warmer.

Future maintenance

Another thing to consider when thinking about your new cladding is how much work you want to do in the future. Some options like timber boards require a lot of maintenance because they need regular repainting.

If you are not in a position to maintain your cladding regularly or do not want the expense of regular repainting, then consider alternatives like Palisades, which give a similar look to weatherboards but are specially coated to increase the lifespan of the cladding and reduce maintenance needs.

Whichever cladding you opt for in the end, you will need to think about employing a cladding professional to install it for you.

Ask the contractor to arrange a site visit to draw up a quote and think about getting more than one quote before you make a final decision.

If you have your heart set on a particular type of cladding, find out if the contractor has any experience with that material and consider choosing someone who specialises in that area. Ask to see previous work or testimonials from other clients before you sign a contract.  Check to see if the company offers a guarantee for the completed work.

Local tradesmen will also be able to give you advice on the best materials to use to survive the Wellington climate so look for a contractor who does lots of work around your suburb on Builderscrack.

Fixing or replacing some weatherboard cladding

Posted 1 month ago

Some of the weatherboard cladding on the house we just bought is in need of repair or replacement. Looking for someone who specializes in this kind of work to come do an assessment on the current state of the weatherboard, to suggest ways to repair boards where feasible (and price up the work), or replace the boards where required (and again, price up that work). Picture attached for reference, but this is by far the worst deterioration to the boards that I have observed, and not representat...

Replace rotten Cedar weatherboards

Posted 2 months ago

We had a builders report done late last year. It identified a number of our cedar weatherboards of needing repair or replacement, including flashings in some areas. The house is multistory, the boards of concern are primarily on the north side (sun damage probably), with a section on the upper level being of most concern. This area is accessible by ladder. I estimate it would be around 15 or so boards that need repair or replacing. Builders report can be made available - screenshots prov...

Weatherboard replacement

Posted 2 months ago

We have a couple of weatherboards that appear to be rotting on our 1960s house.

Will get some photos tomorrow when it's light!
